Start Time: 20:00 BST (London)/21:00 GMT (Berlin)/12:00 PDT (Los Angeles)/15:00 EDT (New York) – The duration is estimated to 1.5 to 2hrs.

If you decide to take part in the upcoming webinar you will also receive an HD recording of the ‘From Here I Can Almost See The Stars’ webinar for free. It’s a scifi cityscape project where I already covered a lot topics in regards to post work for example. So in the ‘Beasts Shall Rise’ webinar I plan to go into more Vue/3d related material. There is a lot of ground to cover and time flies when talking about these projects. It’s insane. :D So below you find a list with topics I plan to go into. Or better ‘hope’ to go into before the time runs out. I want to make clear though that it’s a project walkthrough and not a tutorial. Even though I plan to go into some practical stuff here and there.


Inspiration, Composition, Used Elements

Exploring The Scene:

Setup within Vue, Terrain, City, Dragons

Terrain Manipulation:

The Photoshop File and 16bit

The City:

Closer look at the setup

The Dragons:

Working with DAZStudio & Vue


Last but not least we'll take a quick look into Photoshop and how the post work brought everything together.

See you there!

Arrowhead Mountain 8k Heightfield Package

This is a first try in offering some resources for you to play with. Maybe there will be more in the future. This first one is a freebie that you can grab here – you can either pay an amount you think justifies the quality/content or just enter a 0 to get this package for free. No one will hold it against you. :D The contents of this package are free to use for personal and commercial projects. Please check the included readme file for more info.

Beside the main terrain (8192×8192, 16bit) itself, this package contains a collection of masks (16bit) and colormaps that allow you to go into very fine detail when giving the mountain character by adding textures and materials. It’s best used with Vue or Terragen but can also be used with any other sophisticated 3d package that’s out there.
